Apple today broke its silence on the issue of iPhone 6 Plus frames bending, telling the Wall Street Journal that only nine customers have reported the problem to the company. The company describes the issue as “extremely rare.”
The issue has reportedly a been problem for some users who put the devices in their pockets, but Apple says that tests have shown both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus can withstand real-life use without any problems.
This comes in addition to the buggy iOS 8.0.1 update, which was pulled by Apple after causing problems with TouchID and cellular connectivity for some users. The company reported record sales of more than 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units over the weekend.
